Abstract

In this study, the effect of dietary supplementation of b-carotene and vitamin C on blood electrolytes (Na+, K+, Ca+2,Mg+2, Cl-) and pH of juvenile rainbow trouts under hypoxic stress (4.5 mg/l O2) was investigated. Three diets were prepared differing only in the type of supplementation as follows: Bc dietary group with 70 mg/kg b-carotene, Aa dietary group with 250 mg/kg Vitamin C and control (C) dietary group with no b-carotene and Vitamin C. Based on statistical evaluations, it was observed that serum Na+ level of Aa group was significantly higher than Bc and C groups (p
